My deepest sympathies to you Yvon, Emilie, Delilah and Candice. You both gave me the greatest gift of my life by loving and nurturing Olivia since the day she was born to the day I took her home. I will always be grateful to both of you and your family! Melissa had such a big heart and loved so fiercely. She will remain in mine and my family's heart forever! I am planting a tree in honour and we will continue to celebrate her for years to come. I am deeply saddened that I did not get a chance to tell her how much I loved her, I hope she feels it now in heaven!! My love to all of you!!!

Melissa it is so hard to believe you will not be here to hug. We will miss your beautiful smile, your nurturing ways, your ability to care for people when you were the one needing care. Yvon, Candace, Emily, Delilah your Melissa loved and cherished you and smiled bright when she shared stories of each one of you.
I see Melissa in heaven sitting in a garden of flowers big oak tree dressed in white rocking her babies. She sure knew how to love. I am gonna cherish each moment we shared and keep her memory alive. Melissa you are the most strongest women I know. Your strength will live on in your beautiful family.
Love you forever. Rita Sophie Austin. Xoxo
